I may not try and blow over my horn beyond my lung capacity here but I will have to admit upfront that I am a huge fan of the singer and if I end up over appreciating the artist then please bear with me!
As I was scrolling through the television this evening after returning from work, my ears instantly got hooked on to the news airing on CNN by Jim Clancy. The news was though limited to the extent of airing some sound bites of the song “Skyfall” sung by Adele with lyrics running in the visuals. It was also announced that the song has been leaked on the social media and is drawing huge numbers of visitors online to hear the song for them.
Adele’s fan following has never been moderate in the number of followers that she had but this time around it’s the upcoming Bond franchise also that is going to get benefitted from this fad. It is more of a surprise as the song wasn’t promoted that aggressively on the public front and has yet managed to lead in the iTunes charts.
The song was launched on Adele’s website in UK at 00:07 a.m. with a download option available on the page, many fans jumped at the song to be able to hear it first. As the news broke out among the fans, more fans joined in and the song earned itself the number one position on iTunes.
“Skyfall” may easily become the fourth number one title from Adele in UK provided that fans keep downloading the song with similar exuberance for some more time.
Daniel Craig also talked about the song in his recent appearance on the Late Night show to Jimmy Fallon.
On the show, Daniel said ‘when Adele’s name came up I just jumped at it, I just said, “We have to get her.’
He also said, ‘I just thought that she has the voice and she’s got the tone that we wanted.’
Fans of Adele had also expressed their opinion after hearing the song on Twitter and most have been heartening.
Out of the many tweets in the song’s praise, one said, ‘The theme song for the new 007 that Adele did is perfect.’ Whereas another tweet says, ‘Wow. Adele’s Skyfall is blummin’ good. A proper Bond song. #007 #skyfall’.
